Lopez and Affleck reunited after ending their relationship in 2004. Affleck hasn’t shared much about how they got back together, but he tells The Wall Street Journal it’s “a great story.” He spoke about their reunion without getting into too much detail.

“It’s hard to say who benefits more without going into gossipy detail,” says Affleck. “I could just say that I feel great about being very healthy. And it is a good story. It’s a great story. And, you know, maybe one day I’ll tell it. I’ll write it all out. And then I’ll light it on fire.”

Jennifer Lopez thinks it’s possible to have many loves

Lopez has been involved in many serious relationships that have received a lot of attention in the media. Her relationships with singer Marc Anthony and former Yankees baseball player Alex Rodriguez constantly made headlines.

Lopez, who has been married three times, once told Redbook magazine she believes it’s possible to love many people. She also spoke about her relationship with Anthony, whom she was married to at the time.

“I think you can love many different people, but that’s different from what makes a great partner in life, which Marc is for me,” Lopez tells the publication during her 2010 interview. “When you love somebody so much that you’re willing to work to be a better person, and that other person is willing to do the same for you, that’s when you have magic in a bottle. And that’s not easy to find.”

Lopez went on to say her relationship with Anthony inspired her. She says she was inspired to be a better person and live her best life.

“He inspires me to be better at everything,” says Lopez in her Redbook interview. “A better person, mom, singer, performer, friend, and wife. A marriage is long and you’ve got to like the person as much as you love or lust after them. You’ve got to be friends first.”

Jennifer Lopez says her priorities changed

Although Lopez receives a lot of attention because of her romantic relationships, she says this isn’t her focus in life. Her main focus is her children, Max and Emme. She tells Redbook that having children changed her perspective on life.

“My main priority now is that my kids are happy; that’s my number one focus in life,” says Lopez. “Are these little people happy, content, and getting everything they need? Everything after that is secondary. Before, my work was my main priority—even above myself.”
